A workplace accident can be traumatic in many different ways. The pain you suffer as a result of your injury can be just the beginning.
It is easy and understandable to feel let down by your employer. After all you work hard for them, you give your all to your job, and they could not even extend the simple courtesy of ensuring your safety while you are at work. It is clear that you deserve compensation, but it can feel very uncomfortable even considering bringing legal action against your employers.
After all, they gave you a job, they pay you on time every month, so you owe them a lot – right?
You deserve better
The truth is, it is the responsibility of those in charge at your workplace to make sure that their staff are always working in a safe and secure environment.
If they fail to do that, that is their fault and you should not be ashamed to seek compensation. A workplace accident does not only cause physical and psychological damage, it can also have a huge financial impact on you – a financial impact that you should not have to be responsible for.
Accident Advice Helpline believe that you deserve to be compensated for your suffering. That is why we are here to help you when you are claiming after an accident at work in North Tyneside.
Claiming after an accident at work in North Tyneside
It is natural to fear for the safety of your job if you choose to make a compensation claim against your employers. But this is not something you need to worry about.
It is very possible that after your accident you choose to not return to the job that caused you such damage and trauma. The financial stability gained from a compensation claim can allow you to do this, and to put all of your focus into your recovery.
If you do decide to return to work, you will have a job to go back to. It is both illegal and immoral for your workplace to fire you due to you making a compensation claim against them. If your injuries are the fault of your workplace, then your workplace is liable and should be held to account for the mistakes they have made. This will also ensure that more care is taken in future and further injuries are avoided.
